Sherman's Memoirs evoke the uncompromising and deeply complex general as well as the turbulent times that transformed America into a world power. This Penguin Classics edition includes a fascinating introduction and notes by Sherman biographer Michael Fellman.
Among the guest contributors for this new edition are top boulderers Paul Robinson, the 2008 ABS national champion, writing on gyms and competitions; and Angie Payne, the first American female to climb V13, who shares a woman's perspective on bouldering. More than 300 new color photos taken at the most popular bouldering locales throughout America and the world clearly demonstrate in dramatic fashion the concepts explained in the always entertaining text.
Brilliant, erratic, and a force of nature, Sherman cut a swath across the South that is now a part of world history. In these intimate letters to family, you see a side of Sherman you perhaps have not seen before.
From a young man writing to his future wife, to the general in charge of an army, to the man in his last years, these are the private letters Sherman sent home. This collection was passed on to Marc Antony DeWolfe Howe (of the Atlantic Monthly) by Sherman's daughter.
Here are his opinions on politics and politicians, his fellow generals, his friend Grant, and the horrors of war.
For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
